Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I hire the best electrician in Phoenix?

Search online to find the best electricians in the Phoenix area. Look at their profiles to see how many ratings they have, and read all their customer reviews to see if past clients were satisfied with their work.

Whether you need electrical work, wiring repair or installation services, make sure the electricians have experience and the proper qualifications. You might find information about their credentials on the electricians’ profiles, but you can also try searching for a verified license through the Arizona Registrar of Contractors website.

Before you hire an electrician, ask several to send you a free cost estimate so you can make an informed decision based on pricing and quality of work.

What do I need an electrician for?

Electricians can help with a variety of electricity-related jobs around your home. If you have a new home, they can install new wiring throughout. Or if you have an old home, they can help with wiring repair. 

If your lights keep flickering, circuit breakers seem to be faulty, or outlets don’t have any power, electricians can assist in sorting out the problem. Your house is full of electrical circuits, wiring and sockets that may need repair or updating. These tasks can be safely completed by electricians in your area.

How much does a licensed electrician cost per hour?

An electrician’s average hourly rate is $75, but this price can range from $45-$120, depending on the complexity of the job and the materials needed. The total cost will also vary depending on how long your job takes and if the electrician charges for travel time.

Your location may also be a factor in determining the hourly rate of performing electrical work on your home. To get an accurate estimate of how much electrical work will cost you, contact the best electricians near you to receive free quotes.

Then, read reviews from satisfied customers as well as any issues they may have encountered. This will help you find one with the right experience to work safely in your home.

You should also spend some time researching what qualifications and credentials they have. You might find information about their license on their profile, or you might need to check your local and state government’s website to verify their license.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with an electrician during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up an appointment or consultation with an electrician during the COVID-19 pandemic, ensure that you are performing as much of the process digitally as possible. The best way to begin is by conducting an online search for local electricians. Ask if they can perform consultations over a phone or video call to comply with social distancing mandates. You should also discuss a strategy for how to complete the project during social distancing or whether the project should be completed once the pandemic has ended.

Do electricians do free estimates?

Yes, they do. Whether you’re looking for new electrical work or wiring repair, the electrician should offer you a free estimate. 

Go online to find the best electricians near you. After researching and finding a few pros who seem qualified for your job, go ahead and request a quote to find out how much those electricians will charge you.

What questions should I ask an electrician?

Here are a few questions you should ask any electrician you’re considering hiring:

  • Are you licensed or certified? A professional electrician should have this information ready and up to date. 
  • Do you have any references? Ask for references to learn about their work history from previous customers. You may be able to look online at reviews, but it’s also good to speak to someone to find out their experience with this electrician. 
  • What types of services do you offer? Whether you need repairs or installation services, make sure the electrician can perform the work you need.
  • How long will the job take? This will help you set expectations and rearrange your schedule (if needed).
  • Can you send me free estimates? Request a job quote or estimate. This will help with comparing different electricians. The numbers may vary, but be sure to factor in the experience of each person, as well as the scope of electrical work you’re asking about.

Contact the best electricians near you today to start receiving free estimates for your project.

Is it worth it to hire an electrician?

Yes, it's usually worth it to hire an electrician instead of doing the work yourself.

Electrical work can be very dangerous. The pros spend many years working and studying before they become licensed and certified. That knowledge and training can help them work safely and perform the job without harming themselves or your home. 

Even a small wiring repair job can be unsafe if not done correctly. Hiring someone that has specialized training on how to do each specific job is the safest choice.

How can I find out if an electrician is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Guidelines are available from both local and federal government agencies to clarify which services qualify as essential during the COVID-19 pandemic. To determine whether an electrician is considered an essential service provider in your area, check your city or state’s government websites.

For federal guidelines, consult CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 page, which outlines 16 critical infrastructure sectors. But not that some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

My fiancé had one of their electricians come out. Friendly guy, but Hercules charges by the hour....so it was a little more than frustrating when the electrician kept trying to be chatty with my fiancé and would try to stop working and show pictures of a property that he had just bought. The electrician was at our home for 2 1/2 hours, but guess what - we got charged for 3 hrs.

WOW....I had been working with an electrician to figure out the issue with an outdoor refrigerator/BBQ area. The other electrician had been out to the house three times and kept saying it was something that did not make sense. I contacted James and Lit Electric, he was VERY responsive and ready to get to the bottom of my issue. Upon his understanding of situation he developed a game plan and executed a few days later. Resolved the issue and all is working like a charm. Thank you James, your number is stored in my phone for the next project!

Josh is a very experienced, knowledgeable electrician who did an excellent job installing two ceiling fans with lights. We would hire him again in a minute! He went above and beyond to complete the job, explained how the fans worked and was very fair. Sharon

Alen responded quickly to my Thumbtack project and was able to solve a tricky problem related to old and inadequate wiring to the stove. His two workers were polite, knowledge and professional. Alen was around to oversee the project which was done quickly and reasonably. He will be my go-to electrician from here on out.

Alen squeezed me in at the last minute after me telling him that Wednesday"s are my only day off. Which I was very grateful. He showed up early and got the job done in a short period of time. The price was reasonable and I would diffenitly recommend them to my friends and anybody else who needs a good electrician. Thanks again!

Robert was absolutely wonderful! He was very professional and straightforward. He showed me how to fix the issue if it did arise again in the future, which I really appreciated. My husband and I will definitely use his service again in the future if we ever have any electrical issues. I would recommend him to anyone relooking for a quality electrician. Thank you! 😀

What can I say about AJ other than he was awesome!! He was on time and very professional. Replaced my lights in a timely manner and made sure everything was working before he left. If you need a licensed and professional electrician AJ is the man. Will hire AJ in the future for more projects. He is the REAL DEAL!! Thanks again AJ. Couldn't have done this without you!

Josh responded within minutes of my request. He showed up the same day and fixed my ceiling fan that had a cracked lens and was making noise. He was early for the appointment and very professional. I highly recommend him. I’ll definitely want to use his expertise again in the future. PS He’s also an electrician. So if you need more than to have your ceiling fan fixed, I’d recommend him.
